[N.34] "Angelorum ordo sacer"



O sacred order of angels, delighted alway by God’s bright face, which art nourished for ever by praise of Him – by honey-comb that is sweet alway: Do thou, with thy supplication, commend the course of our life, steadfast never, to God, Who, tho’ He reigneth aloft in heaven, in His kindness regardeth the depths of the earth.
